Proverbs 3:31; Proverbs 14:30; Proverbs 23:17; Proverbs 24:1–2; Proverbs 24:19–20

31  wDo not envy xa man of violence

and do not choose any of his ways,

30  A tranquil1 heart gives tlife to the flesh,

but uenvy2 makes vthe bones rot.

17  Let not your heart tenvy sinners,

but continue in uthe fear of the Lord all the day.

24  Be not uenvious of evil men,

nor desire to be vwith them,

for their hearts wdevise violence,

and their lips xtalk of trouble.

19  wFret not yourself because of evildoers,

and be not xenvious of the wicked,

20  for the evil man has no qfuture;

ythe lamp of the wicked will be put out.
